Twitter Update

I have become a Twitter convert. I finally get it. I have had my issues with Twitter in the past (here and here) but thanks to Rhett I think I have finally gotten the idea behind it. Sure it is a way to broadcast what you are doing to people, but in someways it is like public Instant Messenger. Rhett and I have been using Twitter with Epiblogger, which messes up some people off because there are two of us using one account, but it has been a useful tool. Instead of emailing back and for all day long, we just check our Twitter feed and respond when we have time. It has been great.

With the Epiblogger Twitter going so well I thought I should start to use it as LGR again. So I updated my photo, removed some of the Twitterfeeds and installed Twitterfox so I can just Tweet from my browser. I was using Twitbin for the Epiblogger Twitter account, but TwitterFox makes it easy to switch between multiple accounts so I think I will use it.

To make Twitter more fun and to network with others you need to have followers and follow them so if you are interested in my ramblings of a professional web master or in getting links to videos that might not make it to Video Rambler come and follow me on Twitter. The more the merrier.

  1. I recently joined the Twitter community as well… I feel like it is a good way to keep in touch with my readers. I really like the Firefox plugin you recommended, I will have to check that out.

    One thing I have been using is the Gmail-Talk function to easily update my status, and I have a WordPress plugin that posts any updates onto my sidebar as well.

    Thanks for the info 🙂

  2. I will have to look into the Gmail Talk function. That would be handy. I use Gmail all the time. I have Twitter Tools install on Epiblogger. It works ok. It seems to be half finished. Had to turn the send a tweet when a new post was aded because the darn thing kept sending tweets when we went into correct spelling mistakes etc on published posts. Ended up spamming our own Twitter.
